After our recent post about Mike Brown's collection of mid-century architecture post cards, Oklahoma City design instructor Jim Watson paid a visit to Mike's OKC vintage shop. Jim reported back about his enjoyable visit with Mike and the treasure trove of mid-century goodies at Retrokc. If you find yourself in Oklahoma City, be sure to check out this part of midtown, which is undergoing an urban renaissance with many great shops and restaurants (one serves sumptuous-looking grilled cheese sandwiches). And if you can't make it to OKC, a sampling of Mike's goods can be found at his Etsy shop. The vintage fabrics are particularly fetching!

I stumbled upon the super cool work of Paper Landmarks on etsy.com the other day and was bowled-over by these cardboard architectural creations. Hailing from Latvia, Paper Landmarks makes amazingly detailed replicas of famous skyscrapers, bridges, temples and monuments of the present and the past, built from precisely cut cardboard parts. The models come unassembled or you can arrange to have them assembled for you.
I'd love to see some Frank Lloyd Wright buildings get the cardboard treatment--paper Unity Temple or Larkin Building anyone? Check out the full line here.
